      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Nice Paris

      Will stay here again.


      My wife and I stayed here in August. We are in our mid fifties and I must say that we liked this hotel. The location is outstanding: one hundred yards from Metro Hotel d'Ville, on the edge of the Marais, across the street from a Saturday A.M. food marche, and 2 short blocks from the river. (3 blocks to the point on Ile de St Louis where you can have your picque-nicque.) Top floor is best (rooms 17 thru 20). English speaking staff most helpful. Parisien standard small rooms for this price range. Four cafes in a small place next door are great but can be noisy with the windows open.

      Below average


      I do not understand why this hotel received such good reviews. Good location and that's basically it. It is kind of OK for low budget travelers. Room small but fine, but shower was terrible - dirty, VERY small with hairs stuck between the tiles and in a shower head. We asked to move us to a different room. Stuff was helpful and they did move us.

      New room had a tub which also looked old. It was most unpleasant and stressful time - going to the shower. I would not stay in this hotel again.

      Hotel de Nice is the best


      The breakfast room is very beautiful and the management is extremely friendly. Although the rooms are small (and the showers REALLY small), the location and the ambience is wonderful.

      Fantastic Parisian Experience for our family


      We found this hotel to be totally charming. It was in a fantastic position, so close to public transport, shops, fantastic restaurants and some major tourist sites. We loved our family room on the top floor, which had an amazing view from the balcony to the streets below.

      We could even see Notre Dame. We found the street noise to be minimal (maybe because we were high up) and not a problem. The staff were friendly enough once you made the effort to talk to them; the rooms were nice and clean (ours was even quite large in Parisian standards)-which was good because we had 3 children with us- and the breakfast was good. Only minor things stopped it from being 'perfect' - there was no fridge in the room to keep drinks etc for the children and no double bed in the family room (heh, this is supposed to be the city of love). I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

      Very Parisian


      Great little hotel, very central and reasonable rates, I will stay there again next time I'm in Paris.

      Mediocre sleeps


      After reading positive reviews, I was expecting a quaint hotel room at the Hotel de Nice, effusing Parisian charm. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. The room and bed linens were clean, but the hotel is a bit ramshackle, and our room was miniscule. It was difficult to pass between the end of the bed and the wall. I've lived in France and certainly know to expect smaller spaces, no air conditioning and French aloofness, but this hotel was a disappointment even to this former French resident.

      Great location, pity about the smiles


      If you haven't visited Paris for the Fete de la Musique, you should. Always on 21 June,music of all sorts (counter tenors to down & dirty) throughout the city until dawn. The atmosphere is very friendly, and if you aren't enjoying Satan's Wristwatch at The Lizard Lounge - we weren't - just move on, there's plenty more - 2 naked trombonists on top of a bus shelter was a distinct improvement.Hotel de Nice is in a splendid location at the bottom of the Marais, 2 blocks from the Isle St Louis, in a busy little square off the Rue de Rivoli. Like many small Paris hotels it is tall and thin; if you can face the underpowered lift, or stairs, we would suggest the higher the better; one of our rooms at the very top had 2 balconies and you could just see the fleche on Notre Dame. The eclectic decor is memorable (and fun) which is more than can be said for the reception staff:Parisienne hauteur with knobs on. At 100 Euros/double we thought it good value; we usually pay much less and accept the atmospheric squalor.

      A truely charming and romantic Parisian hotel


      What a wonderful little hotel! Its location on the edge of the Marais couldn't be better -Tiny cobbled streets packed with restaurants & shops( Much better than those on the anonymous boulevards close to the the Eiffel Tower). Most rooms come with a wrought iron balcony and ours overlooked a pretty square. The room was quite small (that's not unusual in Paris) - but with handpainted furniture and floral patterned fabrics it was everything I expected a Parisan hotel to be. I have stayed twice and will be going back again.

      Charming Noisy Nights


      Very nice, charming, but guests coming and going from the cafe below can be on the LOUD side in the middle of the night. Seemed to be a place a lot of motorcycle riders frequent.

      A Great Little Hotel


      The Hotel de Nice is in a brilliant position on the edge of the Marais district, 2 minutes from a Metro station, and less than 10 minutes at strolling pace from Notre Dame. There are lots of great cafes and restaurants in the area,and plenty of interesting shops (including good supermarkets).

      The rooms are charming, comfortable and full of character with lots of unusual decorative touches from the Paris flea markets. Even the wallpaper in my room was worth photographing! i spent several days, and appreciated the good sized room.

      I found it great value for money and a really special part of my Paris experience.

Originally we thought that we were going to have a lot of down time since our dinner reservation was for 7:30pm and our next engagement didn’t start until 11pm but it turned out that the snail pace of typical French dining worked out in our favor and we ended the meal with a wonderful glass of Brandy right in time to catch another cab and be on our way.

      What a place!! This estate is massive and so luxurious and opulent. It has to be seen to be believed. There are massive paintings and sculptures everywhere. The gardens are amazing and huge. We were quite in awe of the whole estate.

      than anything we'd seen in London. It was fairly empty in both the elevator and stair lines when we got down to the entrances, however, we took the stairs as it saved us 10 Euro and was some much needed exercise! The climb wasn't all too difficult, so I definitely ...

      The Eiffel Tower - We did not climb it. We did that last time. It is painted by hand every 7 years. For more (IF)'s see /
      Apparently at the top of the tower they have a 'pick the colour for next time' competition and Hot Pink is winning. I said apparently.
